Meat-lover's Pizza

I love vegetables as much as the next 20-something girl who wants to stay skinny.
I recognize that they're important, contain vital nutrients, etc.
But sometimes, I'm really in the mood to stuff my face with something meaty and delicious.
That's where this pizza recipe comes in. 

The homemade dough is a recipe by The Londoner, and the toppings are my own concoction. Together, they make an absolutely delicious combination that could turn any hardcore vegan back to dairy and meat.

To make this pizza (or any variation, yes, even veggie), grab these ingredients:

2 cups bread flour
1 Tbsp salt
7g dried yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp olive oil
11 oz tepid water (neither hot nor cold)

To start, grab your bread flour. Again, make sure it's bread flour, not all-purpose. Otherwise, the dough won't rise!

Sift your flour and salt together in a bowl, then make a tiny volcano like you used to do with your mashed potatoes.

Combine your water, yeast, sugar and oil together. Pour the mixture into the whole in your flour (this water mixture is the gravy on the volcano).

Stir it around until you get a sticky dough. Then, flour a surface and need your dough until spongey and doughy.

Cover your dough with a wet towel and leave it somewhere warm for about an hour. Feel free to spend that time hunting for great topping options, or going out to the grocery store to buy the ones I used.
When you're ready to finish up, preheat your oven to 430 degrees F, 220 degrees C. This recipe should make enough for 4 pizzas, so chunk off a quarter and begin rolling it out over a baking sheet (feel free to throw the other quarters in the freezer to save for later).
Next, add your toppings. I slathered on some alfredo sauce, then covered the pie with freshly grated smoked mozarella cheese.
Of course, I had to add some fresh pepperoni...

Then I topped it off with freshly cooked crispy crunchy bacon pieces.

Pop your pizza into the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until dough is thin and crispy. Slice yourself some (or eat the whole thing) and relish in your homemade Italian decadence.

Does this pizza make me look fat?

Don't care.
